for a previous production "This is filthily funny monologue...The unnamed protagonist is a clever, witty, and desperately lonely young woman...numbed to almost all emotional connection...'Fleabag’s' too clever to think feminism doesn’t matter to her but too sad to do much about it...As both writer and performer, Waller-Bridge knows how to work a crowd, and from the show’s bittersweet beginning to its devastating end, she has the entire room in the palm of her hand."

for a previous production "The pace is fast and proceedings interesting to watch, in spite of the fact that you are essentially looking at two people sitting and talking for over an hour, one of them literally chained to his seat. It’s a tense, pared-back piece of drama, and although it sometimes demands of its audience a more in-depth knowledge of South African history, the themes are universal." Full Review
for a previous production "The plot’s paper thin, but it doesn’t matter...Sometimes all you need is to watch four talented performers really enjoying themselves on stage...If you could accuse them of anything, it would be a strange lack of confidence, reflected in the structure: they throw a bit much at it sometimes…It can get a bit overwhelming. Twee as fuck, too, though it’s funny enough to wear that...You want to tell them to calm down because they’re brilliant, and the heart of the thing they’re doing is enough." Full Review
